Have any of you noticed how clean the back panel (lower part of the hatch) looks on the Euro Coupe? In the BMW "///M" brochure, they show a silver M Coupe with a pseudo European plate (says "M coupe") that is wider and (appears) narrower than our US plates. I see NO license plate light ... Is that not a requirement for the Euro version? The rear license plate light used on the US is OK; two "bumps" (housings) on either side of the plate ... Too bad it wasn't built flush into the rear bumper. FWIW

The plates are illuminated by the light housing on top of the rear bumber.<p>I have not seen the brochure but you may be able to see a little bump on the upper surface of the bumper, which is the light housing.
